We currently have seven opened bugs for Xwayland. I've managed to send
patches for these on the last few days:
they are relatively simple fix and, Kristian, I see that you acked some
but didn't pull yet, so to ease your job you might want to check the
branch "for-kristian", on my fd.o tree. Thanks.
The other fours bugs hopefully got fixed on my "xwm-client" working branch:
they're related with the window position and aspects of resizing that
changed considerably with the new xwayland protocol. Therefore I don't
think makes sense to solve those on master as well now. Are we okay?
Have an amazing weekend all!
